The Wallabies are pleased to announce Laurie Fisher has joined the coaching ranks in an interim assistant role for the eToro Rugby Championship.

The current Brumbies forwards coach brings over two decades of professional rugby coaching experience to the group.

Known for his technical excellence, Fisher is a former Australia Under 21s mentor and has also spent time coaching at Munster and Gloucester in Ireland and England respectively.

Fisher was contacted on Friday about joining the coaching setup and will arrive in camp with the rest of the group when they assemble today.

Wallabies coach Dave Rennie said: “We’re grateful Laurie has been able to join us at such short notice and would also like to thank the Brumbies for their support too.”

“He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience which will only benefit our playing group ahead of what are going to be extremely tough Test matches in the Rugby Championship.”

Wallabies assistant coach Laurie Fisher said: “I’m excited to join the coaching group at the Wallabies and would like to thank Dave for the opportunity.”

“I’m looking forward to getting on the grass this week and contributing to the success of the group moving forward.”
